Did one 2 years ago from an online pattern but this year wanted to do something different... so was looking at which mugs might be good to mimic on our gourd this year, and behold! Munktiki's "Ultra Cute Kitty" fit the bill pretty well:
And here it is all lit up in the dark...

I can't believe how amazing Crazy Al's pumpkin carving's are! Went to Damon's for brunch and I've had the champagne/after brunch wine urge to carve one.

Haven't carved a pumpkin in 4 or 5 years. Got a call from my cousin who carved an amazing Mario head pumpkin, and the Ellen show wanted him to carve on the show but he lives way up in Oregon, so I had to whip this up for a backup. You might see Crazy Al and me on Ellen this week!

Some cool pumpkolanterns around here !!!
Here are my humble submissions to the collection.
First is a carving I did 9 years ago for a contest among the employees at the Charthouse here in Kona.
And this next one was from last year - a little sculptural conceptual piece that towered over the oceanfront drive through town.

Here are the 3 that Sweet Pea was talking about from last year; Gilligan, Jimi Hendrix & Dean Martin. They're all about 4-6 days old at the time the pictures were taken, so the "sag" is setting in. Still, it was a blast to make. So here's 3 of my heroes (too bad they never jammed together - Bob Denver (Gilligan/Maynard G. Krebs) was a hell of a percussionist!) ---

I was a judge and my two pumpkins where not judged
